    Hmm, I dunno if I like that foregrip nerf so much

    Surely it shouldn't make you less accurate than no grip? Or am I misunderstanding?

    I would rather something like it take you longer to reload or longer to lds

    Your accuracy is WORSE aiming. better hip-firing. Which makes it worse than the laser minus the fact the laser gives away your position.

    The only thing that bothers me is that they seem to not want straight upgrades from the parts- thats shitty. you have to work to unlock them.

    Who the fuck thought that was a good idea

    Dunno

    I've just resigned myself to the fact that I will never get that gun or the sniper rifles

    Oh I'll get it

    I just have to figure out some way to cheese it somehow

    There has to be a way outside of actually playing squad deathmatch because no one in their right mind wants to do that

    Friend me on Battlelog and I can join up and help ya.

    They said they wanted the naked gun to be neutral and have attachments give benefits as well as negative effects or prerequisites.

    "Work" is a dumb term to apply. It does not take long to unlock all the non-optic attachments.

    Straight upgrades are kinda stupid, considering the game is supposed to be theoretically balanced. And it's not hard to unlock them, since you do so by actually playing the game; if shooting people in BF3 is work, not fun, you probably shouldn't be playing it.

    Besides, Tac Light and laser pointer are both straight upgrades, since you can turn them off at will. Just use them for blinding in CQC shootouts.

    un-sarcastically, I dont see the point of it as all it means is the guns that are good at range will get the range bits and the short ones get the short bits. The guns themselves provide most of the flavor.

    So the pp-19 is not for me

    edited January 2012
    I was thrilled with the concept of the pp-19 and its 50 bullet clip until I realized it was basically a less effective p90. then again, the golden gun is a less effective gun than the p90.

    edit: I know we've had someone extolling the virtues of the KH2002 before, but that gun is what I expected the an-94 to be - so much low-recoil bursty pain. the rex is really fun too, so now I have to grind the first co-op mission for a couple hours and get all the other co-op guns.

    It is an AK P90. I don't see how you can't like it.

    I really, really fucking hate how suicides always count as such even if you hurt the guy beforehand. If I put a burst in a guy's chest, he shouldn't get to deny my kill by rocketing his feet.

    Yeah it takes a ton of bullets to kill someone. The only way it shines is hip firing with the laser, the aiming recticle is incredibly small then.

    First time playing in like six weeks, obviously my sniping skills are rusty and I was getting killed a lot.

    Then I switched to MAVing and got 30 Surveillance Efficiency ribbons in a high-ticket Caspian game. It's awesome that people seem to be actually paying attention and exploiting the advantage I'm giving them. Back around release, teammates would look at the guy you spotted around the corner... Then would turn around and sprint away, allowing themselves to be shot in the back.

    In BF3, it has always taken 3 c4 bricks to drop a tank. 4 or more if the tank has ablative armor. Each armor zone will negate a single rocket or c4 brick. Theoretically you could drop all 6 c4 bricks and only disable the tank.

    I've had that happen before that with a jihad jeep. 6 bricks on the grill/hood, right into the back of the tank....disabled :?

    Ramping a jihad jeep into the secondary story of a building to kill a sniper in it is awesome.

    Much more awesome than killing a tank.

    Isn't that tweak list from Reddit something some dude came up with and not an official list?

    So does anyone else find that Seine Crossing is a fantastic shotgun map?

    Also, I went from the 870 once I finished unlocking all the attachments to the MK3A1, why does it take 6 years to load the MK3A1 when it takes like 5 seconds to load 7 rounds INDIVIDUALLY into the 870?

    You are a wonderful murder machine of an addition to our little group. I may be playing whilst drinking later on for mega fun times.

    Learned a couple of important things today. First, frag shotgun shells can totally suicide you, even if they were first applied to an enemy face. That was a fun discovery.

    Much, much less fun is how stupid the unlock system is when applied to air vehicles. What's that? You don't have flares yet? Enjoy dying 15 times to missiles so you can get the one or two kills to get the dumb flares. Such a dumb thing to have to die over.

    When we get going tonight, you can gun. That is the best way to get the first unlocks for the choppers. As for the jets, that is just going to involve a lot of pain. Try whoring the Russian jet on Wake or Oman. The US jet should be an easy target for you. Alternatively, liberal application of lawn darting tanks also works.

    I'll actually have to see if I'll be able to be on tonight. My brother is heading back to college so we've got family stuff going on.

    Looking forward to playing with PA folks again; been playing pub stuff just to grind out some equipment. Needed at least the basics like defibs and an AA launcher.

    I think mostly flag attack bonus's unlocked jet flare for me. Get a buddy to place an attack order and just buzz around it as much as you can. (edit: works better if you set the attack order yourself before getting in the jet) Also the jets you get in rush have a much more powerful cannon you can use to take out tanks and helo's.

    Man, I like Conquest Assault (CA) mode to be sprinkled in around regular Conquest as much as the next fella...but tonight was silly.

    Got a few great matches in before the server fed us nonstop CA (w/no vehicles in any match).

    Shit got old fast.

    At least on the Xbox, it takes 2 to disable a tank, but it can still shoot for a bit before it goes boom. So I just take the extra second or two to apply that third c4 to make sure I get the kill. And one of my buddies told me you can still set off c4 you placed before you died. Can anyone confirm?

    Edit: Beated.

    Yeah, if you planted C4 and died, when you respawn you can pull out the clicker and set it off. I do believe that it will disappear after like 5-10 seconds after you respawn however.

    I have no proof of the last one, just something that I think I noticed. I did the die, respawn, explode several times last night however, I know that works.

    The clacker wont set them off. But if they are stuck to the tank and shot with a rocket or grenade thent hey will blow up.

    You haven't given me a reason to steer clear of you!
